Currently we have two Morris Minors for sale and a Porsche Boxster - very different ends of the spectrum!
However, one of the Morris' is an early model which has had a lot of work done - it is now running a 1275cc engine through the standard 4 speed box. It is a fast little car - it keeps up with everyday traffic whilst looking like an early 948cc model. It is not often you can use one of these cars everyday but we are having lots of fun popping to the shops and back and even raising a few eyebrows when overtaking!
With many more vehicles coming up this year and a new premises on the horizon keep an eye on our progress - you might just be surprised! Happy motoring... even in these bleak winter days. It is only now we are missing the evenings still being 20 degrees,,..
One of the best bits about running a Classic Car business is finding those hidden treasures. We have recently purchased a lovely 1961 Morris 1000 who has been with the last owner since 1983. This owner bought the car from the first owner. This little gem was fully rebuilt between 2008 and 2010 and the attention to detail is outstanding. It has never been in the rain since its rebuild and repaint and it is immaculate. The underneath is also like a showroom car and everything was replaced when it was restored. Finished in gleaming black with a red leather interior this little Moggie is a real find and we hope to find it a good home - it is a show stopper! Keep following us for more details and pics later this week. Happy motoring!
Following the birth of two little Barnes' we have had a quiet few months here at hq. However, from January we will be back full time buying and providing our clients with excellent examples of everyday classic and modern sports cars.
The market has seen some bumpy times over the last year but we think it is starting to level out and return to form. Classic cars are still a great investment - what else can you put money in to, enjoy and then maybe see a rise in value? With banks and building societies only giving around one percent on savings a diversified portfolio could well be the way forward. Having something solid to look at and enjoy has never made more sense...
The 'modern classic' market is growing well. The demand for those 80s and 90s classics continues to rise as those of a certain age look to relive those heady days... indeed if we could find a 1985 XR2 it would be hard to part with. We will be looking for future classics as well - we feel that a head turning, low mileage well presented car is always a sound proposition.
Using our contacts and attending as many events as possible we will continue to bring interesting finds and links to the website so please give us a like or follow us on Facebook (www.facebook.com/barnesclassiccars) to see what we have found!
If you are selling a vehicle then give us a try - you may be surprised as we value repeat custom and fairness in all our deals.
Stay tuned for progress folks...
